HC Deb 18 March 1897 vol 47 cc940-1

I beg to ask the Secretary to the Treasury, as representing the Postmaster General, why it is that a regular postman is not appointed for the Norwood-under-Southall district; and whether he is aware that the district has been left to casual service only for now nearly six months past?


The case to which the hon. Member refers has been delayed in consequence of a revision of the post having been found necessary. The work had grown too heavy for one man, and other arrangements had to be made. A postman is, however, now under nomination for the establishment, and, if he succeeds in obtaining the necessary Civil Service certificate, he will be appointed without further delay.
